Here are some pictures from an Atlanta trip recently. There’s a post from my first Atlanta visit last year here.
Love, Peace & Joy
Take off from BWI…up and aup we go!
Moonshine from Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint. This drink was way too strong for me. I was buzzed from just three sips but I drank it all…(not so smart I should say)

the weather was beautiful so I walked through Midtown
This was really inspiring. It applies to the sculpture in the next picture.
In Woodruff Park. Check out previous picture for the description of this sculpture.
you all know I love sunsets
Today was a sweet reminder of how much I am loved and appreciated – I think I forget that sometimes. I was happily overwhelmed with kindness, well-wishes, yummy food and desserts, and most importantly the nurturing love of friends and family. May I press on toward the beautiful future God has planned for me.
I’m no math nerd but I couldn’t resist celebrating pi day today. Today was extra special because March 14, 2015, is the last day the U.S. date will align with the first five digits of pi until 2115.
I’m thankful for new and old friends, and yummy pies of course. Cheers ❤
this was at the beginning, more pies arrived later
lots and lots of people
Sunshine on a winter day never felt as sweet as it was today.
I woke up early and decided to go on a walk while most people were sleeping in for the holiday today. With no particular destination in mind, I picked a direction and just kept walking. First through the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), where I stumbled on some cool art. After walking in Bolton Hill I decided to head to Druid Hill Park. It was a refreshing and peaceful walk, and I absolutely enjoyed the change in scenery over the 4 mile walk.

these remind me of being a kid

yummy go round by Steven Jones. Made from aluminum and fiberglass.
Dancers by Steve Baker. this made me happy. the colors are so fun and uplifting.

this view gave me a ‘countryside’ vibe without leaving the city
I like how you can see sun rays coming out of the clouds

concluded the walk with pancakes and fresh fruit 🙂
thinks Saturday nights are slightly overrated?
Now back to that dissertation proposal…sigh
My colleague’s novel excerpt, PURE, made the Top 100 in the General Fiction category of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Woot! Could you please take time to read and review her novel excerpt? You won’t be disappointed. I promise!

This weekend was the annual ‘Flower Mart’ so I decided to check that out, especially since the event was held within a block from where I live. I expected to see more plants and flowers than were present. Nonetheless, a few things caught my attention.
I saw marigolds, and had a nostalgic moment – my mother planted these every year when I was a child.
I thought this t-shirt was funny. And I agree, regardless of all the negative stereotypes that prevail about Baltimore (related to crime, poverty, substance use etc.) – “It really ain’t that bad!”
